Would you care if the government threatened a business?

So , it has been rumored that the government made banks take bailout money even if they didn't need it. Sure thats wrong but no one really made a fuss. It's come to light that one of the bankers came forward to Judge Napolitano and told him he was in that meeting where banks were forced to take money. Because this man told them he didn't need nor want their money they threatened him with a 5 yr audit that would ruin that bank. Of course he took it. This was done so the broke banks involved would be indistinguishable from good banks. It's illegal and scary really to think about your government going to illegal measures to get what they want. I definately think they would do anything, and I mean anything to get what they want. Do you believe it or dismiss it?

  • Here it is..... Probably pointless because all you do is whine about where it came from. Judge Napolitano may be a FOX contributor but I believe him as he has no reason to make up a story like this and if you believe he would hwy would you not believe the government would not stoop to illegalities? You think CNN or MSNBC is going to put something out like this, no way.

  • "blogs are not valid news source."

    Says who? You?
    This is not just an opinion like most blogs, it is a personal true story of something that really happened. If you can't tell the difference you should go back to kindergarten. You put your head right back into the sand and let the world pass you by.
